Try Citrix XenApp 7.8 in Microsoft Azure for Free - Fast POC in the Cloud

You can now try XenApp 7.8 in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.  This offering is the latest addition to an already existing portfolio in the Azure Marketplace, which includes NetScaler VPX (BYOL) and ShareFile StorageZones Controller.

With the XenApp Trial, you receive a 30-day trial license to evaluate a complete Citrix XenApp farm for your app virtualization needs within the Microsoft Azure cloud.  All components necessary to connect to your Azure-based mobile workspace will be prepared and created for you.  The easy-to-use template enables a "try before you buy" licensing approach.

You can start with a simple test environment to experiment with cloud-based application delivery and grow to a full-production environment to deliver mobile workspaces from your XenApp Azure Cloud.  All components needed to build-out the environment are included.  Simply login to your Azure portal.  Enter some basic Azure settings like subscription and location information and general deployment settings, like credentials and machine sizes.  And then, press "Create."

You'll get your own environment to trial.
